Purchased some alebrijes from Gil-I love them! He took the time to tell me about them and the kind woman who works there carefully wrapped them. He was great. They have the best choices of fine Mexican art. A must when visiting Vallerta!!!!!!

Lucy's Cucu Cabaña just reopened in the same location it's been in for twenty-two years after extensive remodeling. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused anyone, but we are always trying to make it better.
